Public has spoken on Queensway designs

THE results are in – and more than a third of those who voted chose none of the three designs put forward for the Queensway development.

Fifty of the 142 who voted rejected all of the options – making ‘none of the above’ the most popular response from members of the public.

Close behind in second place was option one, with 46 votes, making it the people’s favourite by a clear margin.

Options two and three gained 12 and 15 votes respectively, while 15 people chose ‘a combination of the options.’

A council spokesman said: “We looked at option one, then tweaked it based on people’s comments. A lot of people said they didn’t like the colour or the dark granite so we changed it.”
